The controversy surrounding Tanushree Dutta and Nana Patekar has taken a new turn with the actress stating that she is putting together a team of lawyers to defend her interests. “Contrary to claims made by Nana’s lawyer, I have not received any legal notice. Instead of making empty threats to intimidate me into silence, send me a legal notice and then see what I will do with it,” she said.

The actress has accused Nana Patekar of misbehaving with her when they were shooting for a song and dance sequence for the film and though her claims have gained currency now, it’s important to remember that the actress had spoken up in 2008 as well, had even quit the film and shortly after, the industry. “Another very important issue that this current scenario raises is how when a victim speaks up, there are considered morally bankrupt and corrupt lawyers and advocates who come forward to defend serial harassers and offenders for their two seconds of fame. Despite witnesses coming forward and all evidence in my support, I‘m being subjected to criminal intimidation and harassment by Nana’s helper. This is the story of countless millions in our country who are still waiting for justice because they got dragged into a web of legal mumbo jumbo and were silenced into submission,” she adds.
